If you are looking for an intimate, immersive and authentic Greek experience based on the water look no further than Variety Cruises Jewels of the Cyclades trip aboard the charming and enchanting Galileo. Pulling into Piraeus port in our taxi, prior to embarking the Galileo, we coasted by many proud vessels of varying size and description from mega yachts to small sailboats, to sun seeking gin ...

We did the Jewels of the Cyclades cruise. We were only 28 passengers (out of about a 40 person capacity) and got to know everyone quite quickly. Just about everyone was a veteran traveller and it was fun sharing travelling stories. The islands that we visited were lovely, and apart from Mykonos and Santorini, were all islands that we had never heard of...where the big cruise ships never venture. ...

The entire crew was very hospitable and made us feel like home. There were only 45 persons on board with much crew and by day 2 we all knew each other on a first name basis. The whole on board experience was like being on a private ship along with friends from many corners of the world- Australia, US, France, Spain, Germany also a few from South America and from New Zealand. The M/S ...

We had a goal to visit the Greek Islands on a small ship, the Galileo was perfect. The staff was unbelievable, the food was sumptuous and plentiful. They were very accommodating for dietary restrictions. Our destinations were changed due to high winds in the open sea, therefore we were unable to visit any of the islands. Our stops were all along the mainland, and included a swim stop on a ...

My husband and I decided to finally take our honeymoon trip (almost 3 years later) as we were saving it for something big. We have always wanted to visit Greece (was on our bucket list) but also craved the adventure part, so we decided to go on a cruise. As we were browsing cruise lines in internet we agreed that we didn't want a big cruise, we were looking for something more personal and ...

Let me list the points: 1) Accommodation - we paid for a cat A cabin and on arrival were shown to a cabin with twin beds. We argued that we booked a double but manager just shrugged shoulders and said boat was full which turned out to be a complete lie. Met the couple opposite us and they had been booked into cat B and then decided they didn't like the cabin and were given an upgrade (at a ...
